Chosen by Coca Cola as one of the top 10 fun runs in the world!

The City Challenge Urban Race is your opportunity to spend the day either as an individual or with a partner competing in a one of a kind scavenger hunt adventure race. You'll need to think on your feet and use your brain to solve puzzles, riddles and clues from a clue sheet to find 12 destinations. Each race is custom built based on the history, unique features and landmarks of the city!

The City Challenge Urban Race, the ONLY 5K and Half Marathon length urban race that offers both a team of 2 and individual registration option! This one of a kind amazing race adventure is for amateurs, athletes and everyone in between. This is a perfect race for people wanting to run their first 5K or Half Marathon because you aren't running in a pack! Nobody enjoys traffic jams, so our courses and destinations are designed with fluidity in mind. Whether you choose to run or walk you will never be standing around waiting. You'll get to see corners and a history of the city you probably didn't know existed, and you'll have a blast doing it!

Participants will have the option of running the 5K Course (3.1 Miles), which pretty much anyone walk, jog or run and complete in a couple hours or the Half Marathon Course (13.1 Miles) with some different objectives! We designed the Half Marathon Course for the serious runners out there who may want to do a bit more running than found in the standard course. You are free to use any method at your disposal to solve the clues and find the destinations (EX: smart phone, tablet, phone a friend, ask locals etc.), but you must reach them by foot (no bikes, skateboards, busses, taxis etc.) For more detailed info, visit our FAQ here: We award medals to first, second and third place finishers from BOTH courses and divisions, and all first place finishers win prizes! Whether you're an athlete or not, if you're looking for a day of active fun...look no further.
